Seafood Salad

I've made this several times but don't have a photo. But, I promise it's easy enough that you don't need one and it's WAY cheaper than buying it at your local market.

Here's what you'll need:

2 pkgs Imitation Crab shredded
1 C Frozen Peas thawed
2 C Rotini Noodles ~ or your favorite noodle
1/2 C Carrot ~ julienned, that means little sticks
2 stalks Celery chopped
3/4 to 1 1/4 C Mayo
1/2 to 1 t Curry
1 t Pepper ~ I prefer White but regular black will do
1/2 t Salt

In large bowl combine crab, noodles, peas, carrots and 3/4 C Mayo. Toss it up and see if you like the consistency, if you want the salad a little more wet, add 1/4 C at a time until you get where you want to be.

Add seasoning. Start with 1/2 t Curry and taste, you can add more curry but go slow. It makes the flavor stronger and sweeter (honestly I don't think you can add too much unless you go completely insane). You can easily make this the night before, just check to make sure it doesn't need more mayo before serving.
